Honoured to be hosting this forum with a punch of exciting and cool young climate activists who will probably make me feel old and bitter. We’ll be discussing what the future looks like for climate activism in post-COVID Australia.
Here’s the info:
Join comedian Tom Ballard in conversation with eight young climate leaders from across Australian in a special LIVE Q&A event seeking answers to the question:
Where to from here for young people?
On the panel are:
- Marco — Youth On Strike!
- Leila — School Strike 4 Climate
- Tish — Seed mob
- Gauri — Outburst! (Youth Action’s Western Sydney youth leadership team)
- Ashlee and Airly — The Mallacoota Sanctuary Youth Group
- Ishara — Climate Reality
- Timothy — Pacific Climate Warriors.
Disproportionately impacted by COVID and the persisting impacts of climate change, in this forum young Australians will have the opportunity to answer questions on what a post-COVID world looks like for young people and discuss how to increase youth representation and involvement in decision making beyond 2020.

With young people routinely under-represented in the media, leadership roles, and decision-making positions, this event will give a diverse group a chance to share their thoughts, ideas and feelings on what the future holds, and how best to tackle its challenges.
